A truly stunning Cafe’d 1972 Puch JC Penny Flyer moped.
Or maybe it’s more of a board track racer. Either way, the pictures really don’t do it justice. Whatever your tastes you can’t deny the work and imagination that went into this tiny cafe. Very well done.
In Houston, you’d get busted for those brake levers / brass knuckles by EVERY cop. Main question is…WHY? Where can you ride at a top speed of 40 mph in a racing crouch, and not get laughed at mercilessly? On the other hand, maybe it was for laughs, like the cordless drill-powered bicycles… Like they say, chop what cha got.
I’d say this was a building excercise much more so than a riding one and in that regard it’s in the company of some much larger builds. Hardtails. Customs etc.
The moped is actually a 1978 JC Penney Puch Pinto. Im’ the owner & builder of the ’78 JC Penney Pinto (flat track-cafe racer). I have enclosed a link to some of the photos of the build. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151224134837830.467599.505222829&type=1&l=23035cd92e
